Better late than never, here is the latest page of Celephais! Unfortunately, with a lot of work over the next two months, it’s looking unlikely that I’ll be able to draw Celephais once a week as promised. But on the bright side, (1) I’ve already drawn part of page 3 and (2) I’m really excited about working on this series. It feels like coming home.
This page may need a little more messing around with screentone and so on, but for now, this is it. I’ll go back and add more plaster and spackle later. I was thinking of the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” — specifically, the sequence animated in “Yellow Submarine” — as I drew this. I wasn’t able to fit in this line from the original story — “When as children we listen and dream, we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life” — but it was also echoing in my head.
Please check back in periodically, and I’ll try to have the next page back up next week! Thanks for your patience!
